Color Bled on a Sweater

I've got a red, black, and white sweater. It's old and I've washed it a lot. The colors stay just fine. Today I didn't think and washed my sweater with new red sheets. Now the white stripes are pink.


What can I do to get the transferred dye off, without hurting the color of the sweater? Will OxiClean work for me or is there something else?

Rit Dye Remover

Depending on the fiber, you may be able to use a dye remover by Rit, which should leave the manufacturer's dye intact. It may change color as it goes through the process. Don't panic. I had tan pants for work and got ink on them. I got a box of dye remover and it turned the pants lavender as it went through the cycle in machine, but then turned back to tan. Read box to see if okay to use on your fiber.
